The orange and black will be without their Captain for the foreseeable future including tonight’s game up in Montreal as the Flyers take on the hapless Habs.
Confirmed? Eric Lindros Says He’ll Skate Again as a Flyer, Legion Of Doom Could Reunite for Winter Classic Alumni Game
Oct 26, 2011, 9:36 AM EDT
Eric Lindros says that he will return to Philadelphia to once again wear a Flyers uniform and skate with former linemates John LeClair and Mikael Renberg in the Alumni Game as part of the Winter Classic festivities at Citizens Bank Park.

Some encouraging news today following yesterday’s nasty stick to the eye/face of Chris Pronger as Paul Holmgren passes along the info that the Flyers’ Captain is “progressing very well.”
Oct 24, 2011, 11:43 PM EDT
Jaromir Jagr scores his first ever goal as a Philadelphia Flyer, does his trademark salute.
Oct 24, 2011, 9:52 PM EDT
Entering Monday night’s tilt with the Toronto Maple Leafs, two Flyers were notably goalless on the season. Both got off the schneid, with Scott Hartnell and Jaromir Jagr each tallying a brace to send the Flyers to a 4-2 victory. Unfortunately, the celebration is tempered by a scary eye injury to Chris Pronger.
Oct 24, 2011, 8:20 PM EDT
Chris Pronger is as tough as they come in the game of hockey, but even he couldn’t keep from screaming as he first lay on the ice, then skated off in extreme pain after the stick of Toronto’s Mikhail Grabovski caught him in the face on the follow-through of a shot.
Pronger went down immediately, clutching a hand to his face and covering his right eye. He did not return to the game, but no updates are yet available. It certainly did not look good. We’ll update as we hear more.
Oct 24, 2011, 4:26 PM EDT
The Leafs come to town pretty hot, having started the season at a 5-1-1 clip. The Flyers, on the other hand, have cooled considerably after their first start, losing their last two games in rather convincing fashion.
Oct 24, 2011, 12:27 PM EDT
The good puck junkies over at Puck Daddy have a post today titled “How Flyers fans are getting screwed for Winter Classic tickets” which does a fantastic job explaining how Flyers fans are getting screwed for Winter Classic tickets. Also, you’re probably not going to the Winter Classic.

It was a pretty ugly night for the Flyers, but among the highlights for the home team was this de-skating of the Blues’ David Backes by Chris Pronger.
Oct 22, 2011, 10:56 PM EDT
Philly sports fans had just one game to tune in to or catch down at the complex this weekend, and after having watched it… I hope you had something better to do. If so, but you still want The Update, read on.
For the second straight game, the Flyers outshot their opponents yet lost convincingly. Despite coming off a night of rest when the Blues were playing for the second time in as many days, and had arrived in Philadelphia close to 4 AM, the Flyers were outplayed by St. Louis on Saturday night and lost by a 4-2 count.
Defensive miscues and poor communication between the blueliners and goaltender combined with some good bounces for the Blues to doom the Flyers, who had trouble with pucks and players close to their own net. Credit Blues goalie Brian Elliott for giving his team the opportunity to win this one, and his forwards for cashing in when the Flyers defense and goaltending failed to do the same. There was definitely plenty to talk about after this one, though a lot of it isn’t entirely pleasant. All that and some video highlights below.

Tonight in South Philly, the Flyers will need to do something they haven’t had to do as a group yet—play on the heels of a sound beating. They took one at the hands of the Washington Capitals on Thursday night, marking their first non-OT loss of the season, and while it’s nothing to worry about (really, nothing short of a major injury is cause for concern this early in the season), it will be interesting to see how the team responds.
Oct 21, 2011, 3:18 PM EDT
Because why not. 3 photos from last night’s loss to the Caps.
Oct 20, 2011, 10:21 PM EDT
This one got out of hand in a hurry in the third period when the Caps scored 3 goals in the first 4 minutes of the period putting this one out of reach and sending many fans over to ESPN2 to see what the Union had cooking.
Oct 20, 2011, 3:20 PM EDT
Just five games into the regular season, Flyers fans will get their first taste of Brayden Schenn in a meaningful hockey game.
Oct 19, 2011, 12:07 PM EDT
The Flyers called up Brayden Schenn from the Phantoms, acquired in the Mike Richards deal.
Oct 18, 2011, 10:50 PM EDT
What a night from the youngsters, eh? On the postgame following the game Rick Tocchet called Tuesday’s 7-2 win in Ottawa a “drubbing” and that pretty much nailed it.
Oct 18, 2011, 2:24 PM EDT
Expect to see Sergei Bobrovsky sitting in the upper deck of the Ottawa arena with his catching glove on prior to game time. He is starting his first game of the season tonight as the Flyers take on the Senators.

Full recap hereBelow, the aftermath of the hit, a quick fight between Dustin Penner and Rinaldo:
Oct 15, 2011, 10:14 PM EDT
The Flyers lost their first game of the season, done in by the efforts of a few former members of the team—Mike Richards, Justin Williams, and Simon Gagne, but also a great game by Quick.
Oct 15, 2011, 2:18 PM EDT
We’ve already talked quite a bit about Mike Richards’ return to Philly tonight, both here and over at Puck Daddy this morning. Given how infrequently the Flyers play the Kings, it feels a bit odd to have the event happen so quickly. Four games into the season, the Flyers will have played the reigning Stanley Cup Champions, who bounced them last season, the rival Devils, and the Western Conference Champs, plus their former captain, who was dealt in one of the most shocking trades in franchise history this summer.
Fortunately for the front office, the early returns have been outstanding. Can you imagine what the past few days of coverage would have been like if the Flyers were winless rather than undefeated when Richards came to town?
Oct 15, 2011, 12:18 PM EDT
Brayden Schenn notches a hat trick in his second game with the Adirondack Phantoms.
Oct 14, 2011, 4:37 PM EDT
Mike Richards returns to South Philadelphia on Saturday night as a member of the opposing team. He may now be wearing enemy colors, but he deserves to be shown the appreciation Philly fans have for what he did here.

The Philadelphia hockey and soccer teams were well represented at last night’s Mitchell & Ness party where Questlove was DJing.
Oct 14, 2011, 9:33 AM EDT
Former Flyers scrapper Arron Asham threw down with non-pugilist Jay Beagle during last night’s 3-2 Capitals win over the Penguins, and man did he beat the poop out of him. Here’s video of the fight, but also what Asham regrets doing after the fight.
